Know What You’re Talking About: New Year’s Eve

I have to admit, I haven’t been keen on NYE parties since 2000. Then again, I did spend it surrounded by cops in the living room of some random high school girl who was so drunk the cops demanded we turn over “whatever drugs she’s on.” No one had any drugs, and after a .000 breathalyzer test, my very disappointed father whisked me to the car and proclaimed my social life to be “over.”

A lot has changed since. After spending the last few years tasting insane amounts of wine for work, I’ve decided NYE can indeed transcend the basic notion of intoxication. In fact, with the right sparkling wine and the right people you can have a memorable night without paying $75 for an “all-you-can-drink” package. I mean, you’re really paying to see what everyone had for dinner on the bathroom floor. Sorry, but it’s true.

Okay, glad we’re on the same page.

By the way, Champagne is from Champagne, France—everything else is sparkling wine. I know, not everyone wants to spend $40+ on a bottle for one night, so we lined up some surprisingly tasty and economical options. READ MORE

Know What You’re Talking About: Wine.

You’ve been invited to a holiday party. A nice one. The one where your girl changes thirty times and appears to be on the verge of hysteria before you even walk out the door. Sure, you’ve dialed in your look, but have you dialed in the wine you’ll bring? The wine that will say, “No, I don’t have a hundred bucks to spend on a bottle, but this $30 bottle is better than the $100 bottle you brought.” Right. Confidence. Knowing what you’re talking about. Check and check. READ MORE

Made in England for Haberdash

We’re very excited to announce the arrival of our latest suit, made in England exclusively for Haberdash by Wensum. The thing you’ll notice first about this suit is the fabric. Simply put, it looks and feels… luxurious. The wool keeps you warm, while the cashmere keeps the suit soft and gives it an amazing drape. And, it’s the perfect winter weight – almost warm enough to skip the topcoat, though we’d say bring one anyway.

It has more traditional fit than some of our other suits, made with a natural shoulder for an unstuffy look and dual vented for a nice, tailored profile. As for the pants – they are very comfortable. They sit a little higher, but still slim throughout the seat and waist. Old school touches include the ticket pocket, popularized during the 1800s as an easy spot to keep your train ticket.

The best part of this suit, though, is the pattern. The houndstooth windowpane is composed of gold, tan and black—combine that with the beautiful burgundy lining and you have something really sharp. It’s the kind of suit that begs to sit down with a glass of brandy or mingle at a select gathering of friends. And it’s only available at Haberdash. Shop in store and online. READ MORE

Cold Weather Apothecary

If there’s any time of year when a little skincare TLC is advisable, it’s winter. Snow, sleet, and freezing wind can be hell on your skin, not to mention the necessary evil known as central heating. So, we’ve pulled together our favorite apothecary products for nourishing and protecting your skin this winter, because there’s nothing attractive about cracked knuckles, chapped lips, or a face that looks like it just came from an arctic expedition.

He’s Making a List.

Sure, vodka and tonic makes for an enlivening Christmas eve, and a few pilsners can help take the edge off awkward political discussions that unreasonably escalate once a year, but shouldn’t we be more focused on the tenets of the season? Like caring? Caring about what seasonal beers we should be sharing and sipping? I mean there has to be something we can all agree on.

I know, it’s overwhelming. There is a galaxy of Christmas beers, from bitterly hoppy to molasses-thick malty. But don’t fret; I’ve made a list. READ MORE
